I loved the punky Wallace and Gromit inspired video for A Honest Mistake!! If you loved early Cure stuff before Robert Smith developed a weirdo thing for bad makeup and unflattering hockey jerseys like some sort of tranny Run-DMC then you might like The Bravery.
Sam Endicott's singing style is Robert Smith-ish and the music is full of jangly type guitars I love so much. I pretty well like every track on this CD except maybe two and those are not that bad either just that A Honest Mistake, PDA, Fearless, Unconditional are better songs. If these guys are wankers I dont really care as the CD is the best thing to come out in awhile amist the coma inducing crap from so called punk princesses and idols.
If you like the Smiths, Cure, early U2, even The Killers and other guitar driven bands with a synth touch then you might like this.

The Bravery is gonna be hot, I can tell. I just saw the new vid on Tv (honest mistake) and after the first listen, I was hooked! the song is kinda familiar sounding- but the techno and sketchy beats inside the song give it edge! buddy's got an elvis look going on, and the whole image is hot!! "Honest mistake" is most likely the best, and unconditional teaches ya somethin when ya listen to it. all the songs are so individual sounding its crazy! cant wait to hear more from them! "out of line" and HOT PERSUIT are the next best ones! "tyrant" is mellow-ish and great! love them!! can even describe it.

Great album. The Bravery has taken what came before and added to it for the better, just like every great piece of music.

Listen up haters, sure you were cool when you were the first kid in school to like the smiths but no one cares!

Its called influence not rip offs, you take away from the bands influencing new music when you fail to come up with any factual critiques and just claim rip off. Do us a favor and ask your parents before you use their computer.

Oh yeah,if you like this CD then get 'The Sounds' they rock!

Great band, great sound, great music. If you're intrigued at all by the editorial reviews, they are quite accurate. Having said that, if you like any of these bands by comparison, then don't second guess buying The Bravery. I assure you, you won't be dissappointed. The whole CD is pretty cool; but some favs are Swollen Summer, An Honest Mistake, No Brakes & Unconditional - all super-great tracks!

this is an amazing cd, from an amazing band, that i can't wait to make part of my collection. No Brakes, Swollen Summer, Tyrant are my favourite tracks.

I saw these guys at CMJ in New York last year. Not only were they jerks they were terrible live. The album is okay. Honest Mistake and Unconditional are really great catchy tracks. But the rest of the album falls short. They sound tired already, jumping on the whole new wave/post punk revival. Better bands out there to spend your cash on.

How to create a buzz for your new album
1. be the opening act for Depeche Mode
2. sing like Robert Smith of the Cure
3. listen to lots of New Order and Joy Division, and steal some atmospherics
4. look the part
5. write the smiths a thank you letter
6. be on a record label trying to cash in on label mates like the killers
The album, given it's many influences is actual listenable, the problem is it may be to contrived. The first single "It was an honest mistake" is actually good, as is much of the album. After a few listens though, it lacks the depth lyrically and musicaly to be remembered as anything substantial. This is alternative fast-food at it's best. If you are ready for a proper meal break out, Technique by New Order, Violator by Depeche Mode, and Disintegration by the Cure. The holy trinity of late 80's alternative.

It's like a poor rip-off of Morrissey and Robert Smith. The music's terrible too. Do not waste your money on this.
